Topic: Christian Lindskog


  
  Musician Forums - (Christian Metal) Blindside - Silence
Christians vocals range from howling scream to melodic wail in the verses then to whispers in the chorus.
It starts off with Christian screaming "Words so secure screaming like an alarm, Are you tyring to wake me up?" and then it moves into the chorus which is incredibly catchy "Now could it be maybe you saw me (YEAH) sleeping?" then suddenly the whole song slows down for a melodic post chorus.
Christian sings well and the song builds up well to the chorus and the chorus yet again is fantastic.

 Compare Prices and Read Reviews on The Great Depression - Blindside at Epinions.com
What lead vocalist Christian Lindskog saw, hundreds of children and broken families lying in the streets and dying from disease, left him in a temporary depression that stayed with him on his return to the states.
Christian is quite emotional this time, as he softly sings the retrospective lyrics until aggression come into play during the chorus where he lets loose some of his trademark screams, against rough drumming and enjoyable guitar and bass combinations.
Christian keeps demonstrating his vocal prowess and power as here his vocals are practically soaked in pain but still hints of hopefulness penetrate the haunting ghostly background vocals to shine through with the love that these guys have for life and God.

But the large majority of Christian Lindskog's vocals featured on this disc are of the harsher variety, tending to go toward the messier and uncoordinated side of things vocally instead of staying to his usual place in line, somewhere between perfection and amazement.
When Christian's quiter vocals show up he is the first to show that these guys still had the talent that they have today, they just don't always use it in the right way.
Christian's vocals are at their best in the whole disc right here.

Vocalist Christian Lindskog has softened his approach by now pushing sounds from his lungs, but he is still most effective when negotiating the threshold between unhinged caterwaul and gnarled scream.
Lindskog is obviously capable of more, he just needs some time to ditch the producer and the Boston records and develop an original voice.
Lyrically, Lindskog seems to focus on personal issues of faith, the difficulties of living in a seemingly broken world and romance, of course.

 Blindside by The Phantom Tollbooth
Offstage, gathered around the minivan, Simon Grenehed - guitar and backing vocals, Tomas Näslund - bass, and Christian Lindskog - vocals are the exemplification of humility, as bewildered that people come out to listen to their music as any parent who stumbles upon one of their shows.
Lindskog - No, maybe it's about being caught up in a wrong way of living as a Christian, and finding his way.
Lindskog - We had an opening band from Virginia.

We're excited..." In summary, lead singer Christian Lindskog and the rest of Swedish rock outfit Blindside are excited.
But, as Lindskog is quick to reinforce, for Blindside it's not about the numbers.
It's a convoluted issue for Lindskog, who is extremely open about his beliefs, yet doesn't want to seem unapproachable to non-believers who are afraid that either they will be preached at or that the music will be - as religious music so unfortunately tends to be - crap.

Christian really shows off his vocals abilities in the chorus, hitting high notes and holding them for a long time.
After reading many reviews, i have come to believe that a lot of you think that when bands change their music it is almost always a good thing because it captivates listeners and shows a new side of what the band is capable of (System of a Down being a good example).
While Christian is a very good singer and writer, he and the others show that they don't necessarily need lots of distortion and screaming to write good music.

Christian adapts a fast, talk-sing sound in the enrapturing verses, but the chorus will tide you over with its calming, gentle vocal passages.
Christian's vocals are coated with conviction and love, as muted screams chant "We are to follow!", soon giving way to Christian's screams of the same thing, in a chorus that packs TONS of power and vigor into a small package.
Christian speaks the verses with passion and thorough conviction - this is a quite blatantly religious song, which surprised me, but not in a bad way at all.

 Jesusfreakhideout.com: Blindside, "The Great Depression" Review
Following a string of independent releases in the Christian market, the band caught a break in 2002 when they released their impressive record Silence to the mainstream audiences.
The record opens subtly with a spoken-word title track that sort of drifts in to the restrained beginnings of the furious "This Is A Heart Attack." Lindskog's vocals are more emotional and unbridled, as opposed to the more controlled and structured approach the band's work displayed in recent years.
While the songs maintain a sense of hope, the mood of the songs are dark and gloomy, with Lindskog's painful experiences evident throughout.

 Blindside - The Great Depression
Earlier this year, vocalist Christian Lindskog and his wife took a missionary trip to South Africa to experience first-hand the different maladies afflicting the continent.
However, Lindskog looked a little deeper and concluded the Western world is dying at a similarly rapid pace, though of entirely different causes.
On the lyrical front, Lindskog is still an atypical wordsmith, willing to express his creeds and thought processes with imagery and metaphors that are full of vibrancy.

He points out that the teeming verses of a song like the aching "Pitiful," - written at the very end of the recording sessions - are sometimes improvised during the vocal session.
Formed in 1994, band members Christian (lead vocals), Simon (guitar and backing vocals), Marcus (drums) and Tomas (bass) have known each other all their lives.
Christian says the group's own creed is simple, with every member of Blindside believing that music can be a vehicle for hope.

Lead singer Christian Lindskog possesses the rare ability of being able to sing with a beautifully fluid voice as well as scream his guts out.
Lindskog's melodies are still present and the band follows suit, musically supporting his vocal delivery.
The first single, "Pitiful," is full of emotion and the melodic stylings of Lindskog's voice, but the music is just not as potent a song as Blindside is capable of delivering.

I caught up with Grenehed and Lindskog several weeks back as they were hanging out in Los Angeles, California, and putting the finishing touches on the video for their first single, "Pitiful." They were in high spirits and reminiscent of the road that brought them here.
Lindskog continued, "It was nice to be able to sit all day and work on our music.
Lindskog explained, "The thing is that we haven't really ever been part of a scene over there because we just released two independent records in the states.

 About a Burning Fire - Blindside
There's power vocalist Christian Lindskog, whose towering, melodic rock voice alternates and overlaps bloodcurdling, almost feline shrieks—sometimes even in the same breath.
Lindskog abstains from screaming almost cold-turkey, as the band marches along to a metronomic tempo in the verses, later transitioning to an explosive, ultra-singable chorus about the need for belonging.
Yes, Lindskog's voice still soars and reaches formidable highs—at times so formidable it's scary—but the melodies are still pungent and deceptively hardcore.

One of the biggest curve balls that Blindside throws is “Shekina.” The song opens with a didgeridoo and folk yodeling, which is followed by verses in Swedish and a string section.
I love when Christian hardcore bands go mainstream but only if they keep strong to their faith and convictions, and B.Side has done just that.
Christian's whaling attacks on the mic is something to be appreciated and admired.

Christian also seems to be really trying to explore his vocal range as opposed to screaming his way through the songs, like on previous efforts.
The single ‘Pitiful’ could well have been a hit single for P.O.D. (Who happen to be the bands friends since Christian guested on ‘Anything Right’ from their hit album ‘Satellite’), while ‘Cute Boring Love’ and ‘Coming Back To Life’ are possibly the band best efforts to date.
There’s some vocal range experimentation throughout ‘Painting’, but it’s the edginess and the fresh sounding ‘Midnight’ where the band break free of the standard nu-metal tag that is placed on them constantly.

In the video, Blindside perform in the middle of a forest while Lindskog chases a girl through the woods, his arms growing progressively longer as he pursues her.
Even though Blindside's members are practicing Christians with positive lyrics, their music is angular, ripping and full of raging energy.
The track concerns a common Christian precept: learning humility and not being afraid to follow the advice of others.

Blindside, a Christian punk-metal act from Sweden, opened the show with an aggressive but unfocused 25-minute set.
Frenetic front man Lindskog tried to make a statement introducing faith-powered songs such as "This Shoulder," but any meaning the lyrics had was lost in a squealing barrage of volume.

 Reviews by Jacob Sahms: Blindside: self-titled
Escaping the shell (almost Matrix-like) requires the help of someone else and Lindskog wants to provide that for the object of his song: “[You are] not the first/who lost track of the sun” but that person feels like they are the only one struggling.
Compassion is the thing that Lindskog lacks, that he requires to be more like Superman—he wants to love others who offend him, who don’t understand him, but he can’t.

 MetalMania - Your Gateway To Metal On The Web   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
Blindside's new album, About A Burning Fire, reflects the growth and maturation of a band that's been road-tested (an 11-month live stint before hitting the studio again) and more determined than ever to make the kind of album that defines the group's heart and soul.
The 'fire' charismatic frontman/songwriter Christian sings about on their second Elektra disk definitely burns within, but the crunching title song does not overshadow some of the less boisterous songs on the album.
A willingness to comb the raw edges that the group displayed on their acclaimed debut, Silence, is in full display here, but tempered with what Christian calls 'an open mind,' about the musical compass of the band.
